Display of Monastery Studenica at the gallery of Serbian Academy of Arts and Culture in Knez Mihailova street

The Spiritual and Cultural Heritage of the Monastery of Studenica

This contemporary exhibition of classical Serbian cultural heritage and one of the UNESCO's World Heritage Sites uses modern technology mixed with actual artefacts to present and explain Serbia's culture, national pride and essence, embedded in Monastery "Studenica", built by the founder of Serbian medieval state and one of the key figures in Serbian history, Stefan Nemanja, in 1196. The display forms part of the festivities celebrating 800 years of independence of the Serbian-Orthodox Church, accomplished by Stefan Nemanja's son and maybe the most revered person in Serbia ever, Rastko (aka St. Sava), in 1219. The exhibition is on display in the Gallery of the Serbian Academy of Arts and Sciences, in Knez Mihailova street. The entrance is free of charge.
